Hooray for Chardonnay: A Global Guide to the World’s Best Bottles

Wine Enthusiast Magazine has "highlighted the best Chardonnay-producing regions and top pours across a scale of stylistic preferences and site expressions to help you home in on the ones you’ll enjoy most. So, what are you waiting for? Forget the days of the ABC (anything but Chardonnay) and embrace your next glass of liquid gold."

What do they say about Oregon's place in the world of Chard? "...as a much-lauded producer of world-class Pinot Noir, why can’t Burgundy’s iconic white wine grape also thrive in Oregon? In fact, it does"

read the whole article >

Among the best bottles of white Burgundy, Napa Chard and Australian favorites, there is a lovely selection of Oregon Chardonnays, including our own $18/bottle Pike Road Chardonnay, an absolute steal for a wine awarded 91 points & Editors' Choice and among the world's best chardonnays!

This is a richly fruity wine, with apple, pear and kiwi flavors in abundance. It softens up on the midpalate, with a spicy cinnamon kick through the finish. The length, balance and big fruit flavors are impressive. PAUL GREGUTT
